Once again, the Indy has shown its propensity – at least regarding their coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict – to favor propaganda over anything resembling professional journalism.
An article published earlier in the month at Indy100 (The Independent’s BuzzFeed–style website featuring ‘click bait’ and viral content) highlighting photos from around the world of Muslims celebrating the festival of Eid […]
Though the Indy article included information on the attempted suicide in the fifth paragraph of the article, if you were to merely read the headline and strap line, you’d be forgiven for believing that Israeli security personnel summarily executed a Palestinian child.
Yesterday, we posted about a Guardian article focusing on “walls within cities” all over the world that included paragraphs on Israel’s “wall” between east Jerusalem and the West Bank, yet didn’t include any information at all on the security reasons prompting its construction. As we also noted as a point of comparison, the Guardian article did manage to explain the security concerns motivating the erection of walls in Baghdad.
By failing to explain why the security fence dividing Israel with the West Bank was erected in the first place, and by erroneously suggesting that Jerusalem is a racially segregated city, the Guardian once again grossly misleads readers by favouring narrative over nuanced reality in describing everyday life in the Jewish state.
As the Telegraph now acknowledges, the US does not consider the settlements to be “illegal” – opting instead for the non-legal designation of “illegitimate”.
Unlike the EU, the US does not characterize the settlements as “illegal”. Rather, since the early 80s, they’ve been characterizing them as “illegitimate”, but not “illegal” – a fact noted at the Telegraph in previous reports.
Chloe Valdary is among the more prolific young Zionist voices, and her new film (“Forever” – An ode to the people of Israel) is well worth the watch.
Once again, the Indy has exaggerated the impact of BDS and significantly skewed the facts to reinforce the increasingly absurd narrative that Jerusalem is facing ‘increasing international isolation’.
This represents at least the fourth British media correction this year to a false claim that Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital.
If you were to glance at the Israel page of the Independent on Sept. 7th, this is what you would have seen. In summary: Two articles pertain to accusations of war crimes […]
The sentence in question runs counter to a fundamental rule of journalistic accuracy and professionalism – codified in the Editors’ Code of Practice in the UK – demands that reporters clearly “distinguish between comment, conjecture and fact”. As we wrote in our complaint to Times of London editors, though the “atrocities” referenced in the sentence clearly represents only the allegations of anti-Israel campaigners, the wording suggests to readers that that this is a fact.
Do non-Israeli Jews around the world have a special obligation to criticize West Bank settlements? Yes, according to Joshua Simons, a former policy adviser to Jeremy Corbyn whose op-ed (Why Jews in Labour […]
A British musician (and anti-Israel activist) named Brian Eno denied permission for the Israeli dance company Batsheva to continue using his music for a series of performances in Italy, the Guardian reported yesterday […]
The Guardian writer’s claim that Israeli Arabs are afforded less rights than Jews links to a widely-cited report by the far-left NGO Adalah which alleges the existence of at least “50 racist laws” in Israel. However, CAMERA and other watchdog groups have refuted Adalah’s claims of racism

The exodus of relatively prosperous (“privileged”) French Jews in recent years due to antisemitic attacks disproportionately carried out by poorer (“not privileged”) Muslims demonstrates that “privilege” does not necessarily protect you from the dangers of racism – whether it’s the racism from the ruling majority or from a ‘marginalized’ minority.
“Charles Anthony”, is a passionate Corbyn supporter who used to be a member of Socialist Workers Party (SWP). SWP is a far-left group criticized for its “involvement in the bannings of Jewish Societies at university campuses and its repeated hosting of Gilad Atzmon”.
The blog Harry’s Place published a post last month on Guardian’s film critic Mike McCahill’s two paragraph, seven sentence review of The Confession, a new documentary about the life of Moazzam Begg. […]
